629<p>HTML email is discouraged, but not forbidden (there are some MUA,
630specifically web-based that make it very hard to disable HTML entirely).
631Beware that some users may have their recieving side configured to hide HTML
632entirely, so it might look like you are ignored, especially if you sent
633HTML-only email. In order of preference, you should endeavour to send:
634text/plain, multipart with text/plain before text/html, text/html. MIME is
635acceptable and widely used.</p>
636
637<p>Please do not send any vacation or out of office messages to the list. In
638the interests of reducing list spam, if you set any auto-responding message
639that goes to the lists, we will unsubscribe your account from ALL lists. Any
640previously subscribed addresses that send mail server messages to the lists
641will also be removed.</p>
